For anyone who has driven down the L.L. Tisdale Expressway knows that this expressway connects the north side to the rest of the city. For some it is their way out on their commute to work, but it's also a way 'in', to the north side and the place that many people call home. Pade takes us on this ride from the L.L. Tisdale into the north side on his track "Wavy".
"Game is for sale if ur tryna floss,
Pade sets the stage in his first verse, which includes shout outs to local group CT$ and also Keezy's album "Pre-Rolled" two entities that have been making waves in the city. "Nigga you ain't heard that it cost to smoke, and I be Pre-Rolled shawty when I'm at the show." To get props from a veteran like Pade is an example of the movement and unity of the Tulsa hip-hop community that was most recently displayed at the #BYE album release party. But that ain't the only highlight from Pade's verse. He shows some crazy wordplay in this track, so much that it was hard just picking out 1 clever line or 4 bars that fit a certain way. So what I had to throw in a part of the verse that told a story inside of a story that gave an insight to the persona that is Pade. He raps, "Game is for sale if ur tryna floss, Heard you ain't a boss til you take a loss, Had me a few so respect the tech, Grew up on Wu-Tang so protect ur neck, Before I play the cards I inspect the deck, And quick to let a brother know that a bets a bet, Pardon my back while I check the check, If it ain't World Culture I need a check for that."
But the track ain't over yet. Starting at minute 3:20 of the track with an airy-like tone, a voice begins to rap over a gritty old school boom bap style beat. It's none other than "Max B" the creator and architect of the Wavy movement. And he is spittin BARs. His verse ending with one line that really sticks out. "Seems like the world has transformed into the planet evil. But I stay with love like tax forms stay with a paralegal."
